Blessing the Dust by Jan Richardson
Join us as we journey through 40 days of preparation, Lent.
For those not familiar with the season, it is 40 days prior to Easter not counting Sundays. The church has historically used this time to prepare and remember the cost of love. A love from Creator God towards His wayward people. A love that, as Pastor Taylor reminded us last Sunday, is not blind, but is bound. Bound to not simply leave us in our sinful state but to act. A love that cost God everything.
During the time of Lent we remember again the cost of discipleship that Christ spoke to His Disciples in Matthew 16:24, "If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me." We deny ourselves - fasting from something good to us, to take up something better. We remember that Christ gave up everything for us, and so we desire to follow Him more closely and love Him more deeply.
During this season, we invite you to join us - what will you deny yourself? What spiritual discipline will you take up? How will you follow Christ in a new way during Lent and beyond?
